Brand new Quilted Fabric Frame Sewing Pattern!

August 9, 2016

I am so excited about my newest sewing pattern!  I have been thinking about making a fabric frame for years.  In fact, I made a version once to appear in a friend’s sewing book but we decided to do a different project instead.  That frame stuck in my head though and I actually knew that I could make a much better version.  Here is the result!



My sister in law, Jennifer Stein, is a great photographer and she is responsible for all these cute photos of my kids 🙂  This new pattern is simple and quick in its most basic form, but one of the best things about the quilted fabric frame pattern is the fun you can have with scraps and fun fabric combinations.



One of my favorite frames is this version above made using binding.  It really frames the frame!   I used Jeni Baker’s binding technique but a traditional binding would also work really well.


The directions in the pattern create a frame for a 5” x 7” photo.  But the pattern also gives extra instructions to create a frame for a 4” x 6” and 8.5” x 11” version.  You can also use the measurements given to create a frame of any size!  The one above is made with tabs and hung on a dowel rod.  Super simple and stylish!

This one below hangs on the dowel rod and has fun trim added.  The trim is such a fun addition!


Head on over to my pattern shop to get our newest pattern!  I can’t wait to see what you make!
